Never a good sign when the closest tool to the model is a hammer :lol: :lol:

The heat shields look good. Did you use a swaging wheel or a press ?

The hammer is for when I have things that not fit as I want. :lol: :lol: :lol:

I use a press.

Shield looks good :D
As for the hammer, I as an "old" tank driver can assure you, the hammer is THE MOST OFTEN needed (and used) tool in a drivers arsenal... What would we have done without our Hammer 5000 (meaning 5 kg)....
Without it, the Leo II would not perform half as good... :D :D :D
Lord, give me strength to change the things I am able to change.... and patience to endure the things I can not change :-)

Hello
I was not 100% happy with the first I did.
So try, try again. Made these with 0,5mm Brass.
I did use a hydraulic press to do them.
Now it will be cut and shaped according to the original, and put in place.

Stay safe and have a nice day.

I had a nice weekend in my cave.
Some more work on the exhaust shields, abit more to do. Grind, grind and grind.
Next I will do the square washers to the bolts.

But we have a very nice hobby and understanding wives. :D

Have a nice day and stay safe.

First time for everything,
I try to make square holes on bolt heads to my enginedeck.
Glad to have learned something new today. :D

I am finally done with the starting block on my Armortek Tiger One late.
Had to redo a bit, made some mistakes first.
I've said it before, brass is a wonderful material.

Got an idea that I wanted to try with my resin printer today.
Became pretty good, but have only put on a layer of German Panzer Grau yet.
